We maintain open communication with our patients before, during, and after treatment. As our patient, you have access to an easy-to-use platform where you will receive personalized content unique to your treatment journey and can reach your provider directly with ‌any questions.

What to Expect

Your oral surgeon will evaluate your oral health and explain your diagnosis and treatment options. We will often take 3D scans to get a detailed look at your facial structures and detect any underlying conditions. In some cases, such as tooth extractions, we can perform surgery on the same day as the consultation.

If you have questions about your treatment, we recommend writing them down beforehand and bringing them with you. That way, we can address all of your concerns and help you feel more informed and confident about your treatment. Prior to your scheduled surgery, we will send you instructions to follow, as well as other information specific to your treatment.

3D Imaging

We use some of the most advanced CBCT scanning and imaging technology available in dentistry today to accurately diagnose and manage conditions, create detailed surgical guides, and more.
